Drawing Near – Day 5 (August 9, 2019)
Today was the last day of daycamp, which made for a lot of emotions, both positive and negative. I’m going to miss these kids, and this community, a lot, but I’m hopeful for the future. Not only has the growth in the kids this year made me excited to come back for years to come, but I have also seen firsthand how Jesus is impacting these kids lives. After lunch, I was hanging out with the older campers, doing some more cooking, and one of them asked if we could listen to one of the songs we sing in the morning: Jesus You’re My Superhero. I was surprised, but obliged. What followed was almost half an hour of these teens, who usually act to cool to sing with everyone else, absolutely jamming out to this simple song about Jesus’ awesomeness. It was amazing. In Acts 17, Paul tells the people of Athens that, as they’ve been worshipping at the shrine to “The Unknown God,” they’ve really been worshipping the God of the Bible. I don’t know if those teens today understand who Jesus is. I don’t know how much God has moved in their hearts. I don’t know if they’ll ever come to know the joy, forgiveness, and beauty that I’ve found in Christ. But what I saw today was worship, and maybe like the first drop of rain or the first strike of thunder, it signals something much bigger on the way. For that I will pray, and in that, we worship.
